Kristo Radion, 17 Jan 2021i want Snapdragon version only. Exynos has disappointed us since the beginning, never give it ... moreThe latest Exynos 2100 is rumored to be superior to Qualcomm.
No headphone jack so I'm keeping s7 for now. It still works. Including headphone jack.

It's much more different than a still image.. You can see a big difference between a hd (720p) video and a 1.3 megapixel still image.. The 1.3 megapixel pixel image would look horrible where the HD video will look amazing by comparison.. All hdr standard are mainly for video playback where colour space contains both display and video content config.. Most of today's displays have 24 bit of colour depth or bit depth.. Some has 30 bit means 1B colour.. Video and Photo editors don't get engineering education as far know..
My initial gut feeling was that if I were to go for any of these three models, it will be the S21 Ultra. More than half my consideration is in the smartphone-based camera technology. The S21 looks good on paper. But north of $1,000 on the price compels me to rethink Currently I have Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro and most likely, best bang for the buck, I will replace that with the Mi 11 Pro.
These 2021 models are DOA.
No microSD (!!!), less display resolution, lower build quality, no Samsung Pay anymore, ugly colours (except black & silver), etc.
And the worst of all. Samsung is blocking now 3rd party repairs (with an software update), like Apple did!
I really like Samsung (also the OneUI & their 3 Android updates), but they made it more and more difficult to choose them over other brands...

Unless you can find a source with that high of a color profile, it's a gimmick, especially for a phone. You are not editing professional videos on it.
In 3 months the price have dropped 30-40%. Be smart.!
AnonD-923722, 17 Jan 2021It's a shame if it is still 8 bit. With 8 bit it would be a horribly looking display.. Most of today's colour number is 24 bit which 16M colours...
Flagships phones are overrated these days, not significant better than an an average phone and costs a fortune with ever increasing prices. All just hype
Never had Samsung phone, never will. Getting Spygle free phone next.
No headphone jack means no sale for me.

My convertible / laptops all have pens, and I dumped them at home because it's a nightmare to bring them around. When you have a mouse + powerbrick + laptop + phone(s) + pen to manage when you go out and about, it's a nightmare to have to carry additional accessories. Imagine if you have to dig for THE pen every time you want to do something.
Xiaomi Mi 11 looks more intresting...

Charger included in a that lower price, better build quality, better battery and Qualcomm SoC (which at least means it will have more custom ROM
I bought oneplus 8t for 530€ a month ago, knowing that s21 will cost a lot more. And i was right, in Norway,it costs 990€, almost double as my 8t.
Yes, it does have newest SoC, better cameras and probably support too...but it cost 2x more.
So, no thanks...
I already bought it a few days ago. I could see that the focusing issues the S20 Ultra had seemed to be gone on the S21 Ultra. Furthermore, there's the 10x optical zoom. And it's $200 less. That was enough for me to buy one.
LG Superfan, 17 Jan 2021I think camera will be better on Huawei as usualNope. This year Huawei dissapointed a lot of people, especially the Mate 40 Pro. It has simple issues that should only be on midrange devices, not flagships. The issues are :
1. Colors and weird white balance
2. Blurry night photos
3. Night mode is often worse than auto mode
4. Selfie camera is useless at night even with night mode
5. Less stable videos than the competition
6. A lot of EIS artefacts thanks to the lack of OIS
7. White balance, colours and exposure instabilities
